Off late, Bollywood is churning a unique genre of movies in heaps. These movies target urbane population, thrives primarily on style quotient, makes full use of Gen Z's 'in-fashion' lingo and brags to showcase carefree attitude of today's youth. Slowly but surely, these chic-flicks are narrowing-down the path from 'niche' to 'cliche'; If promos are any indication, 'Break Ke Baad' could very well fall in latter's category.
'Break ke Baad' is director Danish Aslam's debut vehicle that travels through a hackenyed plot of Protagonists' childhood coochie-coochie to coming-of-age matured love. As an audience, we would be hugely disappointed if we expect something different in this 'seen-before-million-times' tale of love. The proceedings, the twists, the climax and even the dialgoues were so very predictable as if half-baked and half-cooked dish is garnished for the final presentation. Inspite of Imran's and Deepika's sincere efforts, BKB fails to strike the right chord largely because of their flickering characterizations and hollow plot-line.
If Deepika's character is torned between her childhood love (aka, Distraction) and her career (aka, Dream), then Imran's character is one confused soul who tries-his-guts-out to bridge the gap between those two D's. But hang on, the confusion doesn't ends here. There is Navin Nischol too who had a 'question-mark' on his face through-out and then Sharmila Tagore who looks to over-compensate her decision to actually sign this movie.Shahana is perplexed since her career is going nowhere, when ideally she should have Rocked-On the Bolly-world. Yudhisthir proves with his bufoonery act that there is no interstection-area in Venn Diagram of VJing and Acting The worst one should surely go to Danish Aslam who completely loses plot mid-way; so much so that, he stretched climax by atleast half-an-hour. At the end of the ordeal, moviegoers would ask themselves why they came back to theatres with popcorns and beverages, Break (Read- Intermission) Ke Baad!!
Taking the leaf out of director's book, Vishal and Shekhar gives a mediocre music-package for BKB. If the basic plot resembles dozens of other similar-genre flicks, then the songs also plagued with monotony. Over-usage of Vishal and Shekhar as singers off-late, also is one of the prime factors. The best part of BKB is the fact that all the songs are played in background and doesn't actually hampers the snail-pace. Ahh Thank GOD for that!! All the songs are average; they are neither chartbusters, nor easily ignored. 'Dhoop Ke Makaan' and 'Dooriyan' are the best of the lot with 'Azab Leher' and 'Adhoore' comes close second. Art Direction by Reema Paryani is treat to watch; costume designs are trendy, that provides leggy-lass Deepika, ample oppurtunity to flaunt her long legs and cuvaceous figure. (Well, this comment has been only added to write something good about Break Ke Baad).
Maverick Verdict: Break ke Baad has nothing new to offer; it looks like a follow-up to dozens other similar-genre flicks. Watch it only if you have too much 'Break' at your hand, and no Work. Would like to advice newly married Danish Aslam that "Just take a sabbatical and come back 'Break ke Baad' with something fresh. Till then enjoy conjugal bliss and STAY IN PEACE!!!"
